Video Player

This video player really was a labour of love!  I was tasked with creating a video player which would be used over 80 sites to stream video from a Flash Media Server. The video player needed to play at various aspect ratios within text, and standalone.  In addition to this a content browser for related items was required and all of this was to be integrated in an enterprise level CMS.  This was part of my remit over 4 years of employment at Learning and Teaching Scotland.

After much research I decided to use an opensource player, at the time called "JW Flash Video Player" using ActionScript2.  This had a great deal of the functionality required and I used is as a basis for our own bespoke player.   I added captioning support, related video links, a custom menu, new skin and a variety of other developments.  Over time the opensource player evolved and became Longtail Player.  This new player had much of the same funcitonality as the upgrades I had made and was compiled using FLEX and ActionScript3.

I was responsible for installing and maintaining the Flash Media Server, integrating the player in all its various implementations with a Content Management System (Tridion 5.3), and maintaining and upgrading the video player... laterally by making AS3 plugins in FLEX.
